The 1848 Revolution in France was one of a wave of revolutions in
1848 in Europe. In France, the February revolution ended the
Orleans monarchy and led to the creation of the French Second
Republic. The June days were a bloody but unsuccessful rebellion by
the Paris workers against a conservative turn in the Republic's
course. On December 2, 1848, Louis Napoleon was elected President
of the Second Republic, largely on peasant support. Exactly three
years later he suspended the elected assembly, establishing the
Second French Empire, which lasted until 1871. The February
revolution established the principle of the "right to work," and
its newly-established government created "National Workshops" for
the unemployed. At the same time a sort of industrial parliament
was established at the Luxembourg Palace, under the presidency of
Louis Blanc, with the object of preparing a scheme for the
organization of labour. These tensions between liberal Orleanist
and Radical Republicans and Socialists led to the June Days
